Sarah Silverman's father taught her to curse-at the age of three.
She was a chronic bedwetter-until she was old enough to drive. She
lost her virginity at age 19-but didn't really know it. These are
just a few of the outrageous true tales that Silverman shares in
her alternately hilarious and moving collection of autobiographical
essays. With her signature taboo-breaking humour, Silverman writes
on everything from her epic struggle with hairy arms (there wasn't
enough wax in the world) to the death of her infant brother (It was
Nana's fault) and always leaves the reader with a smile. Mixed in
among the essays are scores of embarrassing photos, mortifying
childhood diary entries, and truly humiliating e-mails to and from
her comedian friends.
